Students who use Metrorail, Metrobus, and DC Circulator to get to school and school-related activities need to obtain a Kids Ride Free Program SmarTrip® card.

Beginning October 1, 2018, students will no longer be able to use their DC One Cards to access public transportation. The new card is separate from students' DC One Card.

If you did not have an opportunity to attend one of the Kids Ride Free Events and would like to request a Kids Ride Free SmarTrip Card for your student, please complete the KRF Request Form. Please note, this form is only for students who attend Alice Deal Middle School. We are unable to issue cards to any student not enrolled at Deal.

International Night | Thursday, November 15 at 6:30 pm

As I think about the events of the past few weeks, I find myself truly looking forward to International Night at Deal. This event exemplifies the beauty of Deal's diversity. I love getting the opportunity to taste dishes from around the globe and chat with families about their countries of origin. Our International Night is a time to eat great food while promoting harmony, hope, beauty, togetherness, and peace. In order for the evening to truly be a success, we are asking families to donate dishes from their country. Currently, we have a multitude of European and Asian dishes. We are in need of dishes from Latin and African countries. Please sign up here to bring a dish. Our goal is to have representation of all of the diversity at Deal. Come out on Thursday evening at 6:30 pm to taste great food, chat with teachers, get to know other Deal families, and support our international trips. As with all evening events, students must be accompanied by a parent. 

Seussical the Musical 

Auditions for the 7th grade production, Seussical the Musical, will be held on Thursday, November 15 and Friday, November 16. The parent/guardian meeting will take place on Monday, November 19 at 6:00 pm in the auditorium. Please encourage your 7th grader to audition!

Onward and Upward!
